    Default Trying to compile Fails

    Hi I have been doing Tutorials online for a while and have found an old game that I wanted to load and improve. I was told it doesn't take much to work on so i downloaded it and changed paths to my java and this is the error I get when I try to compile.

    Buildfile: build.xml

    compile:
    [javac] Compiling 167 source files to C:\Users\Katrina\Desktop\EasyRSC\EasyR
    SC\Server\build
    [javac] javac: target release 1.5 conflicts with default source release 1.7


    My Java is 1.7 and I am not sure what it means when it says target release 1.5 conflicts. Understand I am very new to this and I am very sorry if this is in the wrong thread I looked but was not sure what this should be listed under.

    Thank You for any help you can give!

    Try changing the target to 1.7 instead of 1.5.

    This can be done by opening the build.xml file and searching for anywhere that has target="1.5" and replacing it with target="1.7"

    I have checked the build.xml and there is no target="1.7". Could it be one of the files it's trying to compile, a friend of mine got it to work and everything but didnt for me and he didn't have to change anything exept what java he had. Could it be in the file it is trying to compile? And why would it work for him with same java? I have redownloaded java 3 times and reset path to be sure and all older versions deleted.
    taskkill /F /IM java.exe
    set PATH=%PATH%;ant\ant\bin
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_04
    ant compile

    This is what path is set to and it keeps giving the error.

    Please post the javac ant command in your build.xml file (or at least the meat of the command)

    Ok so there was a 1.5 I don't know how i missed it I am still pretty new. java.exe not found, I googled it and could not find anything on it.


    ERROR: The process "java.exe" not found.
    Buildfile: build.xml

    compile:
    [delete] Deleting: C:\Users\Katrina\Desktop\EasyRSC\EasyRSC\Server\rs cd.jar
    [mkdir] Created dir: C:\Users\Katrina\Desktop\EasyRSC\EasyRSC\Server\bu ild
    [javac] Compiling 167 source files to C:\Users\Katrina\Desktop\EasyRSC\EasyR
    SC\Server\build
    [javac] Note: C:\Users\Katrina\Desktop\EasyRSC\EasyRSC\Server\sr c\org\rscdae
    mon\server\GUI.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
    [javac] Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.


    This happens when I try to compile server.


    @echo off
    taskkill /F /IM java.exe
    set PATH=%PATH%;ant\bin
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_04\
    ant
    pause

    Could I tell someone where I get the server at so they could at least see what they are trying to help me with? And could also run it and if it works than gotta be me somehow. If so it is Brutalpkers.net and its the first thread.

    try adding the JRE bin folder to your path. This typically exists in C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin

    Tryed and it failed with the same errors, I don't understand what could be wrong if others ran it after setting the path correctly and it worked fine... Has to be something with my computer is my guess, what could be wrong if i redownloaded set path and it didn't run. What else could cause this on my computer.
